Robinson Crusoe Theme

Themes:

Courage and determination is vital to achieve success in life. As in the story, Crusoe's courage is shown when he leaves home to pursue his dreams of becoming a sailor against his parents wishes. When he is stranded alone on a deserted island, he is determined to overcome the obstacles faced on the island to make life comfortable for himself.

Importance of hard work is the second theme in this story. After overcoming his despair, he fetches tools, and other supplies from the ship before it breaks apart and sinks. He proceeds to build a fenced-in habitation near a cave which he excavates himself.

Loyalty and friendship is found between Crusoe and Friday. Crusoe saves Friday from being slaughtered in a cannibalistic ritual. Since then, Friday becomes a loyal friend of Crusoe. Friday possesses undying gratitude and loyalty towards Crusoe.
